15% Discount on Compact NanoQuest Spectral Sensor

NanoQuest Spectral Sensor

For a limited time, enjoy a 15% discount on the NanoQuest spectral sensor. NanoQuest is a compact FT-IR device for qualification and quantification of materials from 1350-2500 nm. Its performance is comparable to laboratory spectrometers, but at dramatically smaller size and lower cost.

NanoQuest is based on Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) technology, which is often favored in laboratory spectrometers because it collects spectral data over a wide range. The sensor’s patented micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) technology allows for a continuous-wave Michelson interferometer to be created monolithically on a MEMS chip. This enables detection of all wavelengths simultaneously, and mitigates the effects of motion on sensor stability.

NanoQuest Special Promo

From now through March 26, 2021, purchase a NanoQuest spectral sensor at a 15% discount on standard pricing. Your NanoQuest (item NANOQ-2.5) purchase includes a model-specific 400 µm optical fiber and spectroscopy software.

NanoQuest is small enough to fit in your hand, is a fraction of the cost of similar instruments (and even more affordable with the discount), and is ideal for applications including soil and agricultural analysis, product identification and authentication, and materials qualification.

Options available

NanoQuest MEMS-based Spectral Sensor (1350-2500 nm)

From $5,999.00

FT-NIR spectroscopy offers a simple tool to identify different types of textiles, with distinct spectral features observed at wavelengths >1350 nm. This approach may be useful for authentication of natural and synthetic consumer textile products.


  • Covers wider spectral range (1350-2500 nm), at lower cost, than other shortwave IR instrumentation

  • Ultra-compact size (smaller than a deck of playing cards) frees up bench space and makes scalability simpler

  • User-selectable optical resolution (8 nm or 16 nm FWHM) and scan rate provide experiment flexibility

  • Versatile setup options enable absorbance/transmission or reflectance measurements

  • Wider range and lower cost make access to shortwave IR measurements more manageable for a greater number of researchers

Example Applications

  • Authentication – identification of counterfeit textiles, polymers
  • Biomedical and Life Sciences – analysis of bodily fluids, hair samples
  • Food and Agriculture – soybean screening; measurement of sugar content in cereals; raw milk analysis; monitoring nutrients in soil, feed and leaves
